A Special Presentation

The Garland Chamber of Commerce, as part of its role in the development of the local economy, will award a total of $50,000 in grant funding to Garland small business owners at the luncheon on Nov. 13, 2017. After a strenuous application and interview process, the recipients were selected to receive varied sums of grant funding, allowing them to pursue projects in marketing, fixed assets or professional services that will better equip their businesses for continued growth and success. We hope you'll join us in celebrating and congratulating individual business owners who through their own determination and success contribute to the sustainability of the Garland economy as a whole.
